I do plan on getting some baking done today before I cash in. I would really like some home made bread and I still have a box of cake mix to try to make into cupcakes. That will probably be later tonight after everything is done.

Well it looks like I am yet again full powering myself into bubblews.com. I finally got my bill for my tuition this semester. It looks like I'm going to be taking a bite out of my savings which is not a happy thing in my mind right now. At my job I earn 800-850$ a month. If I save up that much every month it will cover my rent and tuition but I still have living expences to worry about. Living expences come up to about 200$ dollars a month.
So either I'm going to have to start looking for a second job or I'm going to have to get one redeem on bubblews a week plus whatever else I can scavenge from other sites like etsy and infobarrel.

That is if pinterest doesn't suck me in. I do want to get some socializing done there though. I finally got 1200 followers!! I'm really happy about that one...
I also have to head into work today. I don't intend to be quite as droopy as I have been at work the last couple times. I just need to get my job done and do it well. I need to keep my personality to myself...

I never did get back to work on infobarrel for this week...feeling a bit giulty about that. I guess next week I'll work harder at this writing thing. Maybe I should write this blog the day before I need it so at least that much is out of the way for infobarrel.
On the plus side. Next week I have a Wednesday off of work. I'm planning on having a baking day...bread and cupcakes...<3

|Here is handmade and crocheted drawstring backpack and drawstring bag.
It is made out of a jean skirt that was reconstructed and up-cycled into
this catchy bag. It has a red and brown crocheted pocket on the front
with a button and with matching braided straps. Its dimensions are 17x15
If you would like me to make you a custom made version of this bag feel free to contact me and I will see what I can do. Since these bags are all reconstructed sometimes it might be hard to find the just-so fabric but I can easily make the crocheted pockets in the colors and shapes that you want.

I managed to get my promised writing done on infobarrel yesterday but I'm really dragging today. I have this bad feeling in my throat and I keep sniffing. I hope I'm not getting sick.
Well I'll still try to get something more then this done today even if it isn't what I told myself I'd do.

After putting this poncho up it makes me remember that I also have some other items that need to have thier pictures taken and added to etsy. I'm trying to wait till I have 5 finished items of one type or another. Right now I have 2 finished and 5-7 all-but-finished projects.
Well as far as writing goes yesterday was a bit of a let down. I only managed to get two posts in on bubblews not 3-5. I guess I need to try harder today once I'm done with this blog post. On top of bubblews though I also have infobarrel to work on today so...I have a full plate. I even have to go into work sometime.
I hear my coffee calling me so I'll finish this here. Once I get my coffee in me I should be ready for the long list of things I need to do.

|This is a beautiful grape purple roving. It is soft and bouncy and would
spin wonderfully.There is no vegetation matter or felted pieces in this
roving.There are 8 ounces in this bundle. I have tried spinning some
myself and it was great! If you love spinning this is a "must have" as a
present for yourself or a loved one.|

Well thats my item for the day. I just re-newed this wool roving listing on etsy. I'm also going to be adding some more vintage thread once I'm done with this post.
I've sort of made a goal for myself to try to add a bit more to my listings on etsy. If there isn't anything more I can say about the item itself I'm going to add that last part you see where I give you the links to my shop's blog and FB page. It makes things look a bit niftyer I think. We'll see how it goes.
I'm also going to be posting a new post or two on my Crafty Hikikomori blog I tell myself that I'm going to post once a day there but I always mess that up on the weekends since its hard to get to blogger on just my kindle. Anyways I'm working up a schedule that I can stick to somewhat...we'll see how long that lasts though.

|My first attempt at Sushi.|
Well yesterday was pretty interesting at work. Towards the end of my shift one of my co-workers went on break and didn't make it back becuase she fainted while in the bathroom. Goes to show that when something bad happens it WILL catch you in the most awkwerd postition. I really feel bad for her. We had to call the ambulance and her mom. I just hope she's okay...
Anyways tomorrow after work I'm heading back to my parents for the weekend. I plan on using Saturday for gardening and Sunday for crafting for etsy. I'll put a picture up of what I get finished. I just wish I could do some sort of gardening here in indiana but...yeah.
On a plus note yesterday I somehow managed to earn 1.40$ on adsense for my blogs. Usually I just get a penny or two for each blog post but suddenly wham-bang I get a dollar. Now if I could just make that the norm for my blogs...
Well I guess I waste sometime watching the big bang theory before heading to bed.

|Getting ready to ink in some of my doodles for Inpar.|
Well after here comes my second from last day in my home away from home. I'm going to be heading home for the weekend and work on my parents garden. They have such big gardens and big plans for thier gardens but unless someone does the work for them nothing happens in these said gardens.
Anyways today I'm planning on getting to work on bubblews again. I'm not sure if this will mean actuall writing there since I'm still trying to biuld trust up in that place again but at least I'll show my face.
For those of you who don't know(which is probably everyone) bubblews is a website that lets you write "articles" and pays you for every view and like that you get. Its still a very new website so its very buggy....very.buggy. In fact its really hard to trust them with all the issues that they have. I keep with them though becuase they do once in a blue moon pay you if you contact them in the just-right-way. So far they have helped me a lot in my journy through living on my own for the first time.
On top of bubblews I also plan on blogging some more or getting ready to blog. I need to start drawing and writing some more stuff for my blog for Inpar which has been wallowing in cyber space for a whole semester now.
Then of course there is work...

|My cup of hot choco to start the day. Made in the coffee pot.|
Hello I am Sheryl just your somewhat normal young person going on adult. I felt like I needed a blog to help me get into a writery mood. At least I can use this to help my fingers get moving even if all I'm doing to talking about weather.
I am a part-time art student at IUP. I am more interested in the fiber arts area. I have been asked often what I want to do as an art student but to be really truthful I haven't a clue. I just know that art is what I enjoy, even though I tend to stray to the crafty side of it I don't think I'm too bad as it.
Another thing that people can't understand about me is that I am going part-time as an art student when I have already finished a degree in english. I also loved english...
I guess that is another reason I want to have this blog. I got this degree in creative writing but unless I keep writing in one form or another I'm never going to do anything with it.
Well anyways I guess thats it for my intro to this blog. I have to go get ready for work. Once I get back from work I'll be getting to work on my webtoon that I'm playing around with on my spare time. I'll write more about that tomorrow.
